71Do no evil, so shall no harm come unto thee.
2Depart from the unjust, and iniquity shall turn away from thee.
3My son, sow not upon the furrows of unrighteousness, and thou shalt not reap them sevenfold.
4Seek not of the Lord preeminence, neither of the king the seat of honour.
5Justify not thyself before the Lord; and boast not of thy wisdom before the king.
6Seek not to be judge, being not able to take away iniquity; lest at any time thou fear the person of the mighty, an stumblingblock in the way of thy uprightness.
7Offend not against the multitude of a city, and then thou shalt not cast thyself down among the people.
8Bind not one sin upon another; for in one thou shalt not be unpunished.
9Say not, God will look upon the multitude of my oblations, and when I offer to the most high God, he will accept it.
10Be not fainthearted when thou makest thy prayer, and neglect not to give alms.
11Laugh no man to scorn in the bitterness of his soul: for there is one which humbleth and exalteth.
12Devise not a lie against thy brother; neither do the like to thy friend.
13Use not to make any manner of lie: for the custom thereof is not good.
14Use not many words in a multitude of elders, and make not much babbling when thou prayest.
15Hate not laborious work, neither husbandry, which the most High hath ordained.
16Number not thyself among the multitude of sinners, but remember that wrath will not tarry long.
17Humble thyself greatly: for the vengeance of the ungodly is fire and worms.
18Change not a friend for any good by no means; neither a faithful brother for the gold of Ophir.
19Forego not a wise and good woman: for her grace is above gold.
20Whereas thy servant worketh truly, entreat him not evil, nor the hireling that bestoweth himself wholly for thee.
21Let thy soul love a good servant, and defraud him not of liberty.
22Hast thou cattle? have an eye to them: and if they be for thy profit, keep them with thee.
23Hast thou children? instruct them, and bow down their neck from their youth.
24Hast thou daughters? have a care of their body, and shew not thyself cheerful toward them.
25Marry thy daughter, and so shalt thou have performed a weighty matter: but give her to a man of understanding.
26Hast thou a wife after thy mind? forsake her not: but give not thyself over to a light woman.
27Honour thy father with thy whole heart, and forget not the sorrows of thy mother.
28Remember that thou wast begotten of them; and how canst thou recompense them the things that they have done for thee?
29Fear the Lord with all thy soul, and reverence his priests.
30Love him that made thee with all thy strength, and forsake not his ministers.
31Fear the Lord, and honor the priest; and give him his portion, as it is commanded thee; the firstfruits, and the trespass offering, and the gift of the shoulders, and the sacrifice of sanctification, and the firstfruits of the holy things.
32And stretch thine hand unto the poor, that thy blessing may be perfected.
33A gift hath grace in the sight of every man living; and for the dead detain it not.
34Fail not to be with them that weep, and mourn with them that mourn.
35Be not slow to visit the sick: for that shall make thee to be beloved.
36Whatsoever thou takest in hand, remember the end, and thou shalt never do amiss.
11The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
9I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
19Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
